Italian Sausage Hoagies

I made this.  It was really easy.  I cut everything first, and then started.  I think that helped a lot.  I didn't do the first broil.  I really liked it.  D did too.  I think it would be really good with either spicy marinara or with some crushed red pepper thrown in.  We'll have again.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 hoagie)

4 (2-ounce) hoagie rolls, halved lengthwise (used Cobblestone)
9 ounces sweet turkey Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch-thick pieces  (used pork spicy sausage)
1/2 cup prechopped onion
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic (used 3 cloves)
1 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce (such as Amy's)
1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced (used 1/2 large pepper)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 2.25 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup)


1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Hollow out top halves of rolls. Arrange rolls, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 1 1/2 minutes or until toasted. Set aside. (didn't do)

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage to pan; cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add onion and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add marinara, bell pepper, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender.

4. Arrange about 3/4 cup sausage mixture over bottom half of each roll (used 1/2C); sprinkle each serving with about 2 tablespoons cheese. Place on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts (90 seconds for me). Top with top halves of rolls.
